Education ministry delays slow EU funding

The Namibian education sector, currently reeling under budget cuts, risks losing hundreds of millions of dollars in EU funding this year because of delays in providing crucial data needed to release the budgetary support grant, the Windhoek Observer can reveal.

President Hage Geingob has been given a 90-day ultimatum by opposition leader, McHenry Venaani, to bring to book culprits implicated in inflating costs in the construction of the Bulk Fuel Storage Facility in Walvis Bay.

Minister of Mines and Energy, Obeth Kandjoze, has urged the mining sector to comply with the New Equitable Economic Empowerment Framework (NEEEF) proposed regulations, as Government moves to implement the programme.

Ebenecia Tjiveta of Onyose Trust was recently named as one of Standard Bank’s Woman of Excellence in 2016 for her work with mentally and physically disabled people. Standard Bank supports the development, empowerment and recognition of women in all sectors of society by contributing financially towards the Namibian Women of Excellence project through the Miss Namibia Pageant.

The land problem in black and white

When we talk about corruption, the land issue and mismanagement problems in Namibia, these accusations are always focused on black people in political office, local Government or businesses. We reject this limited scope. Failure to fully identify a problem means failure to come up with viable solutions.

The beast is beautiful

“Tales as old as time; songs as old as rhyme…”, so says one of the songs in the amazing soundtrack of the 2017 live action movie version of Beauty and the Beast. The story is an old French fairy tale about a beautiful young woman that breaks a magical enchantment placed upon a selfish and rude prince that turned him into a hideous beast.
